I am taking a sabbatical from LabVIEW and NI R&D

Recommended Posts

Well, that creates a mixed reaction.

On the one hand, obviously, congratulations, good luck, enjoy, etc.

On the other, we're losing our resident Greg McKascle and we'll have to see if someone else with the same level of knowledge steps up to offer such access to internal information. I can think of some and hopefully one or more of them will provide.

Good flying...

It'll be amazing crossing 2 time zones (Central to Western US time zones) just by going to the other side of the couch.  Our sincerest hope is you learn more of our perspective as developers and take it back to R&D.

A word of caution (seriously): before you send people in space on a device simulated/tested with LabVIEW, keep in mind that a non-negligible fraction (I am not saying a large fraction, but one bug can be enough) of its algorithms/numerical codes are buggy and since they are closed source (for the most part), the only way to figure out is to run into inconsistencies or unexpected results. This takes a OCD scientific mind to discover, the hard way. Especially in the "uncommon" regimes, those which Dr Murphy likes to invoke at the worst time...

As users, we've done our best to let NI know, but at best it has taken years for actual bugs to be fixed, when they have been fixed... Maybe time to check those X_Bug_Report tagged posts on forums.ni.com...

Have fun.

Oh, and here I am jumping back into the forums one month later to see the backside of a great contributor leaving it! Congratulations, AQ! This sounds like one of those "couldn't say no" opportunities, I'm truly excited for you, go forth and dequeue 🤣

I recently got my own boost of adrenaline, started work with the Facebook Reality Labs crew who are turning out to be a great team. Time to knock off that VI rust and get back in the game 👍

Good luck Sir- you are one of the shining lights of LabVIEW and your willingness to share deep insights on this and the NI forums was of immeasurable value.  I hope that there are others at NI with a comparable understanding and skillset but that is probably unlikely.
